Abbas advisor warns of plot to bomb Al-‎Aqsa Mosque with remote control plane

‎ “Dr. Mahmoud Al-Habbash, the Supreme ‎Shari’ah Judge and the President’s ‎‎[Mahmoud Abbas’] Advisor on Religious ‎and Islamic Affairs, condemned the flying ‎of a small plane equipped with a camera ‎over the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque by a ‎settler. He described this as a step toward ‎‎[the mosque’s] bombing.‎
The Supreme Shari’ah Judge explained ‎that the plot to bomb the blessed Al-Aqsa ‎‎[Mosque] using a remote control plane ‎bearing large quantities of explosives, or ‎with a small plane piloted by a Jewish ‎suicide bomber, exists in the thought and ‎schemes of Jewish extremist groups. This ‎has been confirmed by the Israeli media in ‎recent years. ‎
Al-Habbash said that the danger hanging ‎over the Al-Aqsa Mosque obligates the ‎international community and the Arab and ‎Islamic world to intervene urgently and ‎quickly, in order to force the Israeli ‎occupation authorities to halt their crimes ‎against the places holy to Islam in ‎Palestine, especially the blessed Al-Aqsa ‎Mosque. He reiterated his call to Arabs and ‎Muslims in the world to visit the Holy City ‎and the holy places more frequently, in ‎order to protect them from the occupation’s ‎schemes to obliterate its [Jerusalem’s] ‎landmarks and judaize it.”‎
